Under magnificent hills, big black church, She was getting the feels and a story to search; We met a group of kids from the south, Though the older generation had some doubt; Should I really go and talk with them for the hour? Even if some of them are open and some of them are sour; Boys were easier than girls, But still you feel like energy grows; There was a guy that didn’t use words, But his silence was as free as the birds; Join us and get on the SDGs track, If you smile, you get a smile back; Police might even tangle in suspicion, But what is education without a little ambition? We connected with people real quick, And changed their lives with just one click!
